Since 1970, Casa de Amigos Animal Hotel has provided lodging for the dogs and cats of the Monterey Peninsula. 

In the last few years, under new ownership and management, Casa de Amigos has undergone extensive change. From facility upgrades to the addition of many services, extended hours and increased staff, they have never lost sight of their original mission... to make every animal's stay as comfortable and fun as possible. 

Owned and overseen by Dr. Ben Wilson, Casa de Amigos is located next door to its sister company, the highly regarded Monterey Animal Hospital.

A reader recently mentioned that as part of our in-depth coverage of destinations around the state, we should provide tips that locals use to have fun with their dogs in their home towns or regions. Since Cannery Row and Monterey County are’s backyard playground, we thought this would be a good time to begin sniffing out how to navigate the local scene.

Tip 1: The Monterey Bay Aquarium on Cannery Row is a top attraction for many visitors. Dogs aren’t allowed inside, but that shouldn’t stop you from bringing your pup on a visit to the area. Here are some ways to do that:

• Short-term boarding: a seven-minute walk from the aquarium is Casa de Amigos Animal Hotel, where you can leave you pup (as long as she’s up to date on her vaccines) from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. for a flat fee of $25. Other sitting services are listed here.

• Maya,’s Director of Barketing, loves to be pampered while her parents are checking out the latest aquarium exhibits. Close by is a full-service Petco groomer. Others can be found on and on the DogTrekker mobile app. more »
